Representation of Fulltime Non-Tenure-Track Faculty on IFC



††††††††††† Fulltime Non-Tenure-Track Faculty (NTTF) members contribute greatly to the achievements of the IUPUI community.Contributions include teaching at all levels, providing services to thousands of patients and clients, and conducting research.Without the productive efforts of these approximately 920 individuals, the IUPUI community would find it very difficult to achieve its mission and goals.However, these individuals lack representation on the IUPUI Faculty Council.


††††††††††† IUPUI and the IFC would benefit from the wisdom and advice obtained from their participation.Governance should be shared among faculty in order to protect the rights and the responsibilities of all of its members.It is incumbent on all faculty members to protect the right to representation of their colleagues in faculty governance processes.




Proposed motion:

††††††††††† Ten at-large representatives from the ranks of the non-tenure track faculty (NTTF) shall be elected to the IUPUI Faculty Council.No more than two representatives should come from the same school.
